This text provides a look into the advances in the fields of molecular biology, development and genetics in relation to cardiology. It offers to the reader an introduction to molecular cardiology via a section of introductory overviews. The authors provide chapters on disease-oriented topics written by leaders in the field. These experts have gathered a concise and thorough discussion of the relevant molecular, cellular, genetic and developmental biological processes that underlie and contribute to cardiovascular disease. Principles of Molecular Cardiology, presents a reference that any scientist in the field would want to own as a broad overview of the field.

From the Foreword...
"I believe that this is an outstanding book. Anyone interested in the development, genetics, and pathologies that affect the cardiovascular system will want to have Principles of Molecular Cardiology available for ready reference." -James T. Willerson, MD

From the reviews:

"...should be in any pediatric library, not to say cardiac departments." - Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews

"This book ... provides a broad and up-to-date treatment of molecular biology of cardiovascular diseases. Certainly this book shows quite thoroughly the direction in which cardiology is moving." (American Journal of Cardiology, December, 2005)

"...shows quite thoroughly the direction in which cardiology is moving." -American Journal of Cardiology
